Emory Zink: BlackRock U.S. Mortgage Fund offers investors a high-quality agency-centered mortgage portfolio with the flexibility to adjust out-of-benchmark relative value allocations--such as asset-backed securities and nonagency mortgage-backed securities--along the periphery.

Co-portfolio managers Matthew Kraeger and Siddharth Mehta gather macroeconomic perspectives from strategists across BlackRock and debate investment themes with other fixed-income portfolio managers on a weekly basis. Armed with this vetted context, they consult with sector specialists for trends and opportunities in more focused investment subgroups before reconciling investment themes with current market pricing--including relative value between sectors and fundamental bottom-up security valuation.
